Libby Lloyd – Artist Outline of work


Lloyd’s Colour Field work infuses Op, Pop, Science and Abstraction to form a unique visual aesthetic.  Colour theory has clearly guided, influenced and inspired the work from the beginning.  She is particularly interested in the relationship and concerns with the use of colour by painters and physicists.


She fuses analog and digital technologies with human intervention to create a context within the universal role of print and representation.

The repetitive patterns reveal beautiful amalgamations and an intentional hypnotic colour harmony. The circle form symbolizes unity without beginning or end, expressing infinity and power.


Lloyd’s images are multi-layered coloured screenprints on paper and canvas of varying scales. Ultimately these abstract planes of colour are intended to resonate on an emotive and cultural level.


Lloyd’s key Artist’s of inspiration and influences are George Seurat, Eugene Delacroix, Joseph Albers, Johannes Itten, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Sol LeWitt, Bridget Riley, Chuck Close, and Robert Rauschenberg.


Gerry Buxton….coming shortly.
